Its Either Black or White No Gray Area ♤

It’s a style I really yearn for at times – I just can’t get my head around wearing black and white all the time when I feel the need to WEAR ALL THE COLOURS AND PATTERNS. But these girls do black and white with aplomb, and I can only imagine how easy picking outfits from their wardrobes must be. I wish I could clone myself or have an alter ego who dresses so calm and has the easiest time coordinating outfits. I’d love to know what’s like to be the girl who’s not forever wondering where her bright orange booties are because it would go perfectly with my olive green joggers and orange top.

So this style may not be something I’ll ever embrace myself regularly, but it doesn’t mean I can’t take elements and incorporate it into my style every now and then.

Earth Tones Are Always Fall Fashion WINNERS

When investing in classic pieces, I always think earthtone colors are the way to go!  These items can all be mixed and matched to make the perfect fall look for running errands around town or a date night out. All of these items I already own (and love!)

In Vegas we only get 2 seasons so here’s a colder weather lookbook. Its not even actually cold its been in low 70s high 60s which isnt even cold at all.

TOPS

I went with two busy tops and a simple bodysuit option. It’s amazing how many outfits you can get out of these tops if you keep them in the right color palette. For the busy tops, I went for a earthy tone splash.

BOTTOMS

The key to this part is keeping it basic. One pair of dark skinny jeans and some wine colored jeggings. It’s easily possible to create 45 outfits with these 2 bottoms!

SHOES

It can be easy to go shoe crazy once fall comes around but, the truth is, you really only need a few pairs if you choose the right ones. I went with one thigh high pair of boots with laces, a pair of suede black thigh high that can be dressed up or down, and a more bold red heel. With all of these shoes being completely different but still neutral colored, they made similar outfits look completely different.

Set to make its debut later this year or early next, Saghain said he had plans to turn Fashion Nova into a full fledged lifestyle brand.

Im not sure what beauty products the brand will launch first. If I had to take a guess, it would probably be eyeshadow palettes, lip products, lashes and highlighters. As we’ve seen over the last few years, beauty has become an extremely hot category with many new players entering the industry.

Director Ava DuVernay is a busy lady and about to get busier. The Academy Award-nominated director has her sights set on the incredible and fascinating story of freedom fighter Assata Shakur. Responding positively to a fan’s tweet about previous statements Ava DuVernay has made about her desire to tell Shakur’s story, the Selma director promised that “one day” she’d bring the truth of what really happened to the civil rights activist who fled to Cuba after she escaped from prison.

Ziggy Marley Working With Paramount To Develop Bob Marley Biopic

Ziggy Marley is with Paramount Pictures to develop a biopic about his late legendary father, Bob Marley.

A Bob Marley  biopic is finally coming our wayyy!

Via Deadline:

Bob Marley died of cancer at the age of 36 but in that short lifetime, he changed the landscape of music, introducing generations to reggae music with such hit songs as Get Up, Stand Up, One Love No Woman, No Cry, Could You Be Loved, Buffalo Soldier, Jammin and Redemption Song

The accomplished Jamaican singer-songwriter, who died in 1981, had a father who was caucasian and because of that found himself discriminated against in his country. Although he rose to great fame and fortune, Bob Marley never forgot where he came from. He remained humble until the end of his life. And the power he achieved in music will never be forgotten.

No word yet on when the biopic is expected to be released, but I will definitely keep you posted on this project.
